Will Venom 2 Be Rated R?

The first Venom movie in the franchise has a PG-13 rating. The chief reason for this is because Sony wants Venom and Spider-Man to face off in the future. With Spider-Man’s popularity among the Under-13 crowd, it seems like Sony doesn’t want to miss out on their market.

This came as a major surprise to most fans who would’ve ideally wanted to see Venom in an R-rated setting. Nevertheless, the first movie did have its fair share of violence and gore.

We doubt that Sony would want to give up its chances for a Venom x Spider-Man movie right now. Hence, Venom 2 also most likely won’t be rated R. Regardless of the rating, the movie performed well at the box office so it doesn’t make sense for Sony to switch plans now.

The first official trailer for the movie does have its fair share of gore but it seems unlikely that they would push it up to deserve an R-rating right now.

About Venom: Let There Be Carnage

Venom: Let There Be Carnage will continue the story of Eddie Brock played by Tom Hardy from the 2018 financial success, Venom. An investigate journalist, Eddie becomes the host of an alien symbiote named Venom in the first movie.

In the first movie, Eddie helps Venom take down other alien symbiotes that ended up on Earth. The sequel promises to explore the connections between Venom and another alien symbiote named Carnage. We get a glimpse of Carnage, or rather his host, in the mid-credits scene of the 2018 movie.

We see Tom Hardy reprising his role as Eddie Brock. Woody Harelson plays Cletus Kasady who is the host of Carnage. Venom: Let There Be Carnage is releasing on September 24th 2021 in theatres only.
